Wave Machines - Punk Spirit

A song "dedicated to anyone who ever ran away from a fight, then daydreamed an epic victory from the safety of their bed" Punk Spirit is a far cry from anything else Wave Machines have to offer. And that's no bad thing.

Singer Tim Bruzon delivers lyrics full of anger and disappointment in an ironically calm and understated manner. Punk Spirit is a compellingly beautiful, and at times even delicate, song. There’s something truly sad about this song, even the charming “ahahs” don’t stop it from being a melancholy affair. But everyone needs a bit of depressing music in their life and I can’t think of a better song to soundtrack the bad times than this simple but effective number.
